Listen and learn

Thoughtful, insightful and inspiring. Even if you only have a passing interest or knowledge in sci-fi, this podcast examines so much lodged in our collective psyche through really engaging and well informed guests. Can I just say how much I love David Eagleman? I love David Eagleman.
